May 19, 2023: Wondering if you can repair weapons in Tears of the Kingdom? Find everything you need to know in our guide.

In this guide, we'll look at whether you can repair weapons in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom. Weapon durability was a hotly debated topic in its predecessor, and Nintendo has decided to finally make changes to how weapon repairs work in Tears of the Kingdom.

If you were frustrated by how Breath of The Wild’s weapon durability and did not like having to craft your favourite weapons dozens of times, then this could be set to change. There's a new Fuse mechanic in Tears of the Kingdom that addresses weapon durability concerns to some extent.

Sadly, you can't repair weapons in Zelda Tears of Kingdom. Once a sword or other piece of equipment is broken, you can't fix it back to its original condition. However, there is one caveat that will keep fans happy.

Just like how Breath of the Wild allowed you to experiment with crafting, Tears of the Kingdom’s Fuse tool offers intuitive ways to make use of your weapons, meaning you shouldn't need to worry about repairs.

You can create all kinds of weapons by attaching materials to your existing weapons. For example, you can create a spear by combining a pitchfork and a long branch. You can even combine a rock with a branch and make a makeshift hammer.


We do not know the limitations of the system just yet, but the game will likely offer dozens of weapon crafting options, so you are not constantly worrying about your best weapons breaking. That's because you'll always have a fresh supply of resources to craft into a new weapon. While the Fuse mechanic does not take away weapon durability concerns, it is still a step in the right direction.

Just like Breath of the Wild, the Master Sword is likely to be the only weapon that self-repairs, while every other weapon will need to be crafted. With Tears of the Kingdom allowing players to be a lot more creative with their crafting choices, the game alleviates some of the concerns players had with Breath of the Wild.
